and will now likely testify under oath and give full details of how he cheated for so long to the u.s. anti-doping agency. armstrong had been faced with a deadline to testify or lose his last chance at break on his lifetime ban from sports. in a just-released statement, usada wrote -- we have been in talks with mr. arm strorng and we understand that he does want to be part of the solution to clean up the sport of cycling. the sudden change comes on the heels of an abc news exclusive. our report that according to a high level source, agents are actively investigating armstrong or obstruction, witness tampering and intimidation, for allegedly threatening people who dared tell the truth about his cheating. a case reignited by his recent confession to oprah. >> i didn't invent the culture. >> mm-hmm. >> but i didn't try to stop the culture. >> reporter: if charges are ultimately filed, the consequences could be severe. >> these are serious potential crimes. you're talking about possible sentences, up to five, ten years. >> reporter: the pressures against armstrong are immense, and include civil

in the 20th century, the u.s. was at war virtually every decade of the 20th century, so if we think of ourselves as peaceful country that does not engage in war, we need to rethink that. >> that is right. david, i want to ask this question, because where we were before and boots on the ground, the sense of the collective experience of war was quite different. we were looking at the numbers of military troops versus civilian americans not engaged and it is less than 1% of the u.s. population that is doing the fighting, and now with technology and drones, it, part of it why perpetual war seems possible because there is little cost to the vast majority of us. >> well, if we had a universal draft and in 1994 two-thirds of the class of princeton was drafted. that is a huge check on the politicians, and the policies that we are are following with drones are infuriating people because other people get killed and innocent people killed along the way, which raises in your question that you are raising future conflicts, and the anger that, imagine if somebody was using a drone here and killed
he's doing. >> reporter: but why now? dorner was honorably discharged from the u.s. navy reserve just last friday after ten years' service. including a tour in the persian gulf. was that the trigger for this killing spree? or evidence of careful planning? >> i have more questions than i do have answers at this point. >> reporter: if dorner gets his apparent wish, if he is killed, we might never know the whole truth. nick watt, abc news, los angeles. >> wow. and this 6,000 word manifesto gives some scary insight into what he is thinking. one part in the document where he writes, self-preservation is no longer important to me. i do not fear death, as i died long ago on 1-2-09, referring to the day that he was fired. >> right. >> from the force here. so this is a guy as you heard from the piece who is looking to kill and be killed. that's what makes him so dangerous. >> this manifesto is interesting. he kind of switches between completely insane and 100% lucid. >> yes. >> he talks about two different political figures and different stars on television almost like this is something he now
timothy dolan, the head of u.s. conference of bishops. he spoke to reporters before he left for rome. >> on thursday we will with him for a while. that i look forward to. that will drive him home literally, to say good-bye. then i think it will begin to sink in that what are we here for? that is going to be awesome. martha: always very plain spoken. cardinal timothy dolan expressing his enthusiasm for what lies ahead of him as he heads to rome. they will begin the meetings on monday we are told you about a spokesman for the vatican says there is no way of knowing how long they will want to meet before they set the date for the conclave to begin. so we're still a few steps to go in this whole process as we get closer. bill: my bet they will move fast but we'll see. it is their call. the conclave is the assembly of cardinals who will pick benedict's successor. 11 american cardinals among the electors in the conclave. the prime meaning from latin, any place a room that could be locked with a key we hear. the cardinals will go to the sistine chapel twice a day to vote. only cardinals und

and center. waterboarding, however you define it, is no longer front and center because the u.s. has discontinued doing it. we talk about "zero dark thirty." >> 400 drone strikes. do we know, any idea, about civilian casualties within those? any concept? collateral damage? >> it wasn't the best part of mr. brennan's testimony yesterday, there has been significant collateral damage. the numbers are obviously -- whether it's hundreds or thousands -- the real question is, you've got to ask yourself on a cost benefit way, yes. at times innocents are going to be hurt. you've got to ask yourself don rumsfeld's questions. what you are accomplishing against terrorists, is that to some extent offset by the fact that you're alienating populations and governments with whom you have to work? that's the question we have to constantly ask ourselves, this cost benefits test. >> john, it's donny. if we got to the point and as i listen to mr. brennan, where we were going to do a drone strike against an american citizen, it would be the most desperate of times, and i don't want to have to go through a
